Summary

It's here: the sequel to Do They Know It's Christmas Yet?, the hilarious comedy novel that joyfully transported us all back to 1984.

Tash and Jamie are back, and no one could be less pleased than her. They accidentally went to 1984 and broke it. But together they sorted out their mess. Or so they thought. Now the hapless sister and brother are back, and this time it's a matter of life or death.

How far would you go to save a life? How about stealing a million pounds? Sometimes you just have to do the wrong thing.

Lose yourself in Saturday Superstore, Paul Daniel's Magic Show, the Sports Review of 1984, and the corridors of the BBC TV Centre. This is the ultimate warning if you're ever planning a DIY heist. 

Grab a slow-cooker and travel back to December 1984. You'll want to stay.

James Crookes has been writing comedy for TV and Radio for over 20 years. He has contributed to shows on BBC One, CBBC, and CBeebies, along with producing and co-presenting the Bauer Radio breakfast show, Big John @ Breakfast, since 2004. This is his second novel.

NOTE: Tash is a lovely lady, but like many adults, does sometimes rely on the "F-word" when she's flustered. Please consider this if easily offended or listening in the car.

Superb sequel! Great British Comedy

These books have great characters and I very much hope that there will be many more books to come in this series. I would also like to add that James Crookes does an amazing job at narrating. Looking on Audible I cant see that he has narrated anything other than his own books but he does a brillant job at giving each character so much personalilty with his narration, I would highly recommend that Mr Crookes not only gets on with writing more books in this series, but consider narrating other peoples books too as he is clearly highly skilled at this too. Ive listened to countless books and quite a few where the author have decided to read their own work and most times they are not great, but not here. I can only assume Mr Crookes does indeed have acting skills.

Highly recommended, and as I said in my last review, this should be a BBC Christmas Special

One of the best this year

Loved loved loved this book. Once again James has created a wonderful feel good book that makes you want to time travel back to the 80s.
The first book was my favourite books this year and Thea sequel does not disappoint. I adore the characters and plot for the book which has so many laugh out loud moments it should be made into a movie to spread the joy.
A fantastic read five stars from me and a high recommendation.
Well don’t James can’t wait for the third.

Another classic

Having loved part one this was a must 'hear' and i eagerly awaited its release. I'm glad to say it didn't disappoint. Not only do you get another nostalgic trip to the 80s but you get an enthralling story with many twists and turns. As with the first book there are many genuinely laugh out loud moments...I eagerly await part three....and there had better be a part three!

Binge worthy

Listened to this right after the first book as I didn’t want it to stop.
In need of more of this humour - looking forward to book 3!

A very worthy sequel

Having read the first book I was somewhat doubtful that the 2nd book would live up to the same expectations!
I needn't have worried - From the initial chapters it takes off where the first book ends. The characters are developed further in a way that you start to believe in them more and laugh and cry in equal opportunities.
There are plenty of plot lines and surprises and I even stopped to Google a fact after some cards were dropped. You know what I mean if you have read the book!

Well done James - Bring on book three and the TV series....

Take me back to 1984!

Loved this second book in the series, excellently narrated by the author. I was desperate to know what had happened to Jamie, and why he stayed in 1984! I love the characters, Raymond and Maureen are my favs and I love the way the story jumps straight back in where it left off. Can’t wait for the next one as lots of loose ends to tie up! Hope these books get made into a tv series! Would be great!

I want more .... 'sake

I've went through the two books like a hot knife on butter...
They are so good and I'd recommend to anyone who was wanting a great Sinclair C5 time travelling read, it has more than enough laugh out loud moments and the combined 17 hours have wizzed by... not giving anything away but a walkie talkie scene had me doubled over ..
It was also brilliantly read/performed by the author.
I'd suggest reading "do they know it's Christmas yet" first to get the full enjoyment from this.
Also maybe watch Paul Daniels Christmas show '84 on YouTube ... 😉
I really do want more though...
'Sake.

Be a fool not to listen

This is an excellent follow onto the original, can't wait for the 3rd book to come. A very British story, very witty, gives warm feeling to days gone by.
